    The available Webmerge can it read an Access database direct (tables, queries), or a feed created by Access only.

    I think you have to "Export" a table from Access before WebMerge can handle it. It cannot read a .MDB file.

    So the "WM-AccessLink tag" is useless. Until now I split feeds in Access and create separate feeds. I still have to do this?

    You must export the Access database to a comma delimited file.

    The WM-AccessLink tag will take care of the web columns automatically. You do not need to change the column before making a flat file.

    Sorry, still don't get it. Untill now I was exporting to flat files by using queries to split the feed. I don't change the columns. So what's the difference. Should I use WM-AccessLink tag instead of WM-Field? I think it is the same.

    Uphill,
    WM-AccessLink is only needed if in Access you have a column defined as a hyperlink column type.

    In your exported flat file, it takes all the # in that hyperlink column and figures out that its a url automatically. It saves alot of time in changing the the flat file column into a hyperlink.

    Access cannot be read directly to create HTML pages.

    If thats not what you needed to know. Sorry about that.
